Scottish National Front warns of violent clashes in Aberdeen

Far right group plans recruitment drive same day as parade

A FAR right group, the Scottish National Front, today warned of clashes with a peaceful parade in Aberdeen on the May Day weekend.

The Scottish National Front is planning a recruitment drive in the Castlegate, Aberdeen, on the same day that the Aberdeen Trades Union Council has its annual parade.

Brian Carroll, president of the ATUC since March 2012, said: “I was not aware of any event planned by the Scottish National Front.

“From our point of view this parade is to show solidarity among workers and to highlight the issues that working people face around the globe. It is nothing to do with them.”

Scottish National Front organiser Dave MacDonald today warned he expects violent clashes on Saturday, May 4.
